NY Times: Early adopters will snap up all the iPod Minis that Apple can make

“The actual price is $250. That’s only $50 less than the 15-megabyte, full-size iPod, which holds nearly four times as many songs.

Apple argues that that’s the wrong comparison. It points out that the Mini is only $50 more than a 256-megabyte, flash-memory-based player like the Rio Cali. Such players hold only about 60 songs (and, of course, lack the elegance of Apple’s hardware and software).

In any case, early adopters and gadget fetishists may well snap up all the iPod Minis that Apple can make, even at this price; Apple can always lower the price later.”
